UK Police swaps pen and paper for Note 3
If you are in the UK and up to no good, you could be sent to jail courtesy of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The West Yorkshire Police have traded in the good old fashioned pen and paper for Samsung’s flagship phablet of last year. In fact, Samsung was courteous enough to handout four thousand units of Note 3’s for use by both front line officers as well as support staff. Assistant Chief Constable, Andy Battle believe that the introduction of the Note 3 will help “…maximize the capability and effectiveness of policing at the front-line”, reducing the amount of time spent doing administrative duties and more time in the communities.
The Note 3 devices that the West Yorkshire Police use will come with exclusive apps such as an e-notebook that help officers perform administrative tasks without returning to the station. Officers will be able to record information, witness statements and complete missing persons forms while also being able to transmit these information to other officers and staff as live updates.
This is not the first time Samsung devices have been approved for use by an authoritative body. The US Government did approve a host of Samsung devices including the Note 3 and Note 4 to be used to store sensitive information from the Ministry of Defense. At this rate, we can expect see more organizations and countries adopt Samsung devices for their services, a testament to Samsung’s reliability.
